    DRM won't let you.

    You have to cast your service to the TV. Screen mirroring to your TV is not supported due to DRM. Go to the Netflix or Prime Video App tap the floating action button with the cast symbol. The TV must support Chromecast.

    The difference between your OP6T and your friends LG phone could be the maximum allowed resolution. Your OP6T supports HD playback and this HD content is more relevant to be secured. Your friends (maybe older) LG phone may not support HD playback, so the DRM isn't present.

    This is not correct, it’s a OP issue. Has nothing to do with DRM. My Samsung phone casts Disney+, ESPN, Amazon etc perfectly fine. My 6t won’t...I can cast a web browser or anything else... Just not an app.
